Daryl Morey and the Houston Rockets announced the trade on Twitter at 3 p.m. this afternoon.
The trade includes Rockets players Patrick Beverley, Sam Dekker, Lou Williams, Montrezl Harrell and Kyle Wiltjer, Houston’s 2018 first round pick and finally two minimum contract players acquired today, DeAndre Liggins and Darrun Hillard.
The trade started with Beverley, Dekker, Williams and a first round pick in the morning and grew from there.
Houston also acquired three additional players on minimum non-guaranteed contracts who can be used in pursuit of Paul George or another trade. They did so while preserving all of their 2017 - 2018 allocation cash which will refresh on the 1st.
Not to mention Houston will now have a mid-level and bi-annual exception to chase free agents.
